TAMPA — DT Warren Sapp and S John Lynch were among the reasons the Bucs defense of the mid 1990s through the turn of the century was the best in the NFL.
Thursday, they were among 127 nominees for the Hall of Fame. Also nominated were ex-Bucs receivers Keyshawn Johnson and Keenan McCardell.
Sapp, 39, was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, Defensive Player of the Year in 1999 and part of the team that won Super Bowl XXXVII in January 2003. He played nine seasons with Tampa Bay and four with Oakland and recorded 96½ sacks.
